What we're about
If you are a widow or widower and want to build a new social life around positive, friendly people struggling with being a widow/widower just like you, join our group and meet up at local* restaurants to eat, talk, and support each other through this challenging stage of life. Join activities such as bowling, mini-golf, karaoke, casual dinners, and even kayaking occasionally!
Important - When you RSVP "yes" to an event, it means you will be there! Do not RSVP yes unless you are 99% certain you'll be there. Otherwise, it is not fair to the restaurants and other venues that reserve large spaces for us. In the unlikely event you have to change your RSVP to a "no," do so as soon as possible, and simply change your RSVP - no need to comment or tell us specifics, we know everyone is busy and things come up.
Our goal is to have a group where it's fun to get out of the house, do fun things with friendly people, and plan events that we can look forward to.
If you do make written comments on any event, please make sure they are positive and please do not "overshare" about health issues or family issues in the public comments.
Certainly if you have serious concerns or feel the need to contact us about health issues or family issues, use the messaging feature to send private messages to the organizers or to anyone else in the group individually. That's the best way to handle personal, health, or individual issues.
Once you join we ask that you attend at least 1 event every 6 months and upload a current picture of yourself. This will enable us to find you at events.
* We're centered in Marlton, in southern New Jersey, and we generally meet within a half-hour's drive of there.
